Against my wife's better judgement, I'm asking you people for some ideas on what to mount behind my CG7 Wheel Horse. The input puuley on the transmission has two grooves. It's accesible from the rear of the tractor and just begs to be powering something. The main use for this tractor is parades, shows and keeping the grandkids happy.  I thought about installing a pusher proppeller and guard like on an air boat  or an ice cream maker or a squirrel cage fan for those hot summer tractor shows.    Whast do you think?

A fan would be neat !  I'll have to think of some that I,ve seen . Maybe a small generator ?  Corn sheller ?  Thinks that the old hit & miss engines would have powered  would be good choices too , , Al

"LIGHT BULB"   I work with a guy who made his own mini hay baler. He recently mentioned using a hit and miss to power it.  Something like that would work great behind the cg7.  THanks  :thumbs:  Rick

YUP I like that guy too.  I just don't want to do all that work. it;s much easier to pay him to do it and walk on over to the ladies selling pies.

My vote is a bubble maker. 

Every little kid likes bubbles.

Make a nice smooth looking panel to close that back up and forget the "sideways"  pulley is in there! :(

Although I think the intended use is for a tiller with a belt driven RAGB, I like the fore-mentioned suggestions and I will add a margarita blender to the list. It could be used for sno cones too, but I think the profit margin on the margaritas would be a little higher.

For parade use make a candy flinger like a salt spreader. You will be the hit f the parade.

Since you use it for parades, show's and the grandkids then I think you should keep it safe.  You mentioned you didn't want to do all the work involved with making ice cream so what about putting an ice cream container back there and run the compressor from the tractor.  One like you use to see a bicycle push.  You might even partner with the guy who makes it to do deliveries.  During the parades grandkid could walk beside the tractor and hand out small ice cream samples.

I like the fan & bubbles idea. Since the pulley is horizontal, have the fan pointing up and figure a way to blow oversized bubbles up into the air.

Thanks guys.  THe wife likes the bubble  machine idea. Told her to find one or design one. I kinda like the idea of the ice cream freezer. Instead of EDY'S  ice cream it could be RICKEDY'S ice cream. :D  :D
